lxrandr & screen resolution

Postby rocketrrt » Fri Nov 30, 2012 12:11 am


I am not sure what happened I was adding a Category to main menu. When logged out to check other users the Screen resolution changed to 1600 x 1200 and I can not change it. It was and I want 1280 x 1024. When running lxrandr from the menu nothing happens and no error shows. When running from terminal i get following message:

warning: output I-1 not found; ignoring

and nothing happens.

Did something get deleted not sure what to look for.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

I would try reinstalling some of the components, for example, the display manager (lxdm?), or even replacing lxdm with lightdm. See http://lxlinux.com/ for lxde component list. Also, arandr and xrandr are 2 tools that can be used to change resolution.
